    Soon?! I want the X rate after X6, so if that could be delayed... About a Namie rate, I'd have no idea how to even tackle that, so it's all yours for the taking. I could help out with graphics and such, but I'm in no rush to take on something that big when I've never done a rate before.
     
  3. Ha I saw that it was second in the queue and thought you must be going ahead with it anyway.

    I can host/co-host it, but I know there are forum members like you who are bigger Namie fans and would do her justice. I think it'd be bigger than the Britney discography re-rate that I'd like to do after B10, and I was hoping to do something a little smaller before I take on that much material.

    A full Namie discography rate needs to happen, but perhaps it's not the right time. Unless someone else wants to take it on.

  4. Can I sign up to run a rate on charity ensemble singles?

  6. I was thinking a two part Namie Rate split between like... Queen of Hip-Pop and PLAY or something. @BEST FICTION I hardly think anyone will take the Xtina rate from you if you decide to do Namie in the meantime. If you or @ThisIsRogue need help with it I'm willing to guide you and help (not co-host though, I'm a bit busy with my current rates).
     
  7. Thanks sis, I appreciate the offer. I'm not going to do the Xtina rate until X6 (which means I have about... a year or 2 to wait). But I'm still not sure if I should take on such a huge discography for my very first rate. I will think about it though.
     
  8. Just want to say how good of a job you did on them.

  9. How do y'all feel about a rate for duets? It wouldn't be every duet song ever recorded, and I'm still unsure on whether to cut it off at the 1980s or 1990s because I don't want the older songs done wrong (though it's inevitable). There are also some songs on this list that I'm unsure about whether they'd really be classified as duets or not. For example One Sweet Day is credited to Mariah and Boyz II Men, but it's not really a duet if she's singing with more than one other vocalist. Same with Under Pressure, though Freddie Mercury is the only other vocalist David Bowie is singing with.

    I've tried to steer clear of songs with features as they're not really duets, but have made some exceptions depending on whether the song structure lends itself to actually being a duet (Nelly Furtado - Promiscuous featuring Timbaland) or has been included on both artists' albums, implying that the song belongs equally to each artist (Nelly - Dilemma featuring Kelly Rowland).

    I've also tried to spread the songs over the decades as evenly as I could. I think the list of duets from the 1980s could be triple what it is now, so any suggestions are welcome, as would suggestions for any of the other decades.

    Anyway, your input and feedback would be appreciated. Draft list below, and would appreciate suggestions for other songs to include or remove from the list. Songs that I'm unsure of in red.

  10. Double post - @ohnostalgia suggested a Runners-Up rate in the Winners Rate thread, which I think is a good idea.
     
  11. Love the idea a lot.

    How about Robbie Williams en Nicole Kidman's Something Stupid. Or George Michael/Mary J. Blige - As. Also Me Against The Music. They could all not fit the profile you set. Just throwing it out there.

  13. Sounds like fun, as long as you promise not to include anything from South Park.

  14. Out of interest, how long does it usually take for rates to move up their respective queues? I'm currently number 13 in queue C (previously number 12 so I appear to be moving in the wrong direction..).
     
  15. Quite a while! I'd estimate 8-12 months depending on which list (A, B, or C) you're on.
     
  16. OMG. Atomic Kitten will have recruited more of Kerry's children to fill in by then!
